The diameter of a circle is the length of any line segment drawn through the center of the circle and having endpoints on the line that defines the circumference of the circle. It can also be defined as twice the radius of the circle, with a radius being a line segment with an endpoint at the center of the circle and one on the circumference of the circle.
Diameter is a length measurement
